NHL roundup: Corey Crawford backstops Blackhawks

Corey Crawford came away with the shutout in this one, not Brian Elliott.

Chicago’s goalie stopped 30 shots and Bryan Bickell and Marian Hossa scored to lead the Blackhawks to a 2-0 win over the Blues Sunday in St. Louis, ending Elliott’s bid for a fourth straight shutout.

‘‘I felt good today, but I think the main thing is everyone is playing well,’’ Crawford said after his third shutout of the season. ‘‘We need everyone to play well every night and so far this year it’s been pretty much that for every game.’’

Elliott, meanwhile, shut out the Red Wings, Predators, and Wild in succession on the road for a franchise-record scoreless run of 189 minutes 23 seconds. The road mark continues, but his overall shutout string ended at 214 minutes in the second period.

The Blues rarely tested Crawford until the third period and lost their second straight in front of a standing-room crowd that had a healthy contingent of Blackhawks fans. St. Louis has seven games remaining.

Red Wings 3, Predators 0 — Henrik Zetterberg scored in the second period and visiting Detroit beat Nashville for a crucial 2 points in its chase to extend its streak of playoff berths to 22 seasons.

The Red Wings got their first win in four games, the last two shootout losses, and moved into sole possession of eighth in the Western Conference, 2 points ahead of Dallas and Columbus. Jimmy Howard made 22 saves for his third shutout this season.

Sabres 3, Lightning 1 — Jhonas Enroth stopped 32 shots in helping host Buffalo keep up its late-season playoff push with a win over slumping Tampa Bay.

Buffalo (18-19-6), which took over sole possession of 10th place in the Eastern Conference, is 4 points behind the Rangers for the East’s eighth and final playoff spot.
